The relationship between the Middle East and the West makes for fascinating study, spanning centuries.  Tonight we take a look at this phenomenon, and how ancient patterns are reasserting themselves in modern forms.  A fundamentalist type of Islam, by no means the only variant of this immensely complex religion, is rushing to fill the vacuum left by the collapse of Arab socialism, which was built largely along Western lines with a huge secularist component.

We also have our typically lively aftershow, with discussion of the news of the week!
